    Never seen that before.

    The horse thought the man did it and was not happy about that.
    Can't blame him.
    Surprised the man didn't have a broken leg.

    I have seen, in cutting training, not competition, a horse hard after a cow loose it's footing and slide down.

    Now, in working cowhorse fence work, yes, there are some spectacular wrecks when the cow crossed in front of the horse.

    I would guess the horse and rider will be sore for some days.

    Edited to add, didn't see any comments?
    Ok, read them, par for the course.
    Some don't know about cutting, but have an opinion anyway.
    The internet for you.

    I still think all there probably were sore from that one, cow, horse and rider.

    Ouch! Didn't know what hit him.
    The camera caught the white calf moving out from the herd, then panned away and the turn back man just didn't quite get the white calf to turn back to the right place I guess. Glad nobody got hurt!

    Veal.

    That white calf was being a problem from the get-go, could see him wanting to cut out. Maybe the black one was his fwiend??

    I expected worse based on the word "wreck". (Not belittling the fall, that wasn't fun; just was expecting some sort of multi-horse pileup!) I would have to think that the horses do collide and/or trip over the calves from time to time though?

    I would be having that cow for my freezer right away! As in, turn back guys, go rope that one right this second, and let me take home.

    Amazing the horse didn't get horned. Glad rider was ok too.

    horse looked lame on left rear at the end as he was being lead away by the rider... I do believe there may be a level of loss of trust between horse and it driver

    I saw that too and replayed to see how that leg would have been affected.
    I believe you're right about the trust too. I can't believe I actually opened it when it SAID wreck!! Glad no one was very seriously hurt.

    He's had more good than bad experiences with his person! Guess he must have gotten over the 'off on LH' too!

    Wow and ouch!

    I don't think there will be any short or long term trust issues with this horse/rider combo - they look like experienced pros that were just caught off guard.

    Probably a steer initiation of some sort.. He must be in some sort of club now.

    Glad the horse, human and steer all walked away.
